A Veganized Family Recipe: Pepper Steak

Day 20: Veganize an old family recipe.

Full disclosure: This is going to be a quick and dirty (and kind of cheater-y!) post! This has been a super duper busy weekend visiting my family in RI, and I just haven’t had a chance to actually make this recipe. But I know exactly which recipe I would veganize: pepper steak. I haven’t eaten it for years, yet I can vividly remember many dinners that included this recipe alongside mashed potatoes. I have a particularly fond memory of eating it at my grandmother’s table, surrounded by family. And I have this recipe card, with my mom’s distinctive handwriting (albeit a version  from ~20 years ago!) and lots of stains from years of use.

Veganizing this recipe would be pretty simple — I’d just use steak-style “beef” strips (homemade via Miyoko?!), vegan Worcestershire sauce, veg “beef” broth, and a reduced cooking time. I’d serve it with mashed potatoes and some extra gravy, and I’d savor the cruelty-free version of a childhood favorite.
